李貝妮Pollyanna Lee

李貝妮Pollyanna Lee是當年代的本地樂壇金牌經理人梁柏濤Pato Leung,繼捧紅陳美龄Agnes Chan後,試圖全力栽培為接班人的七十年代初本地女歌手。

她原是本地的一支三人女子民歌組合Tripod Cauldrons成員,麗風唱片(Life Records)於1970年出版的《First Folk Album》及《Second Folk Album》內,分別收錄了這組合所灌唱的"Sorrow"及"Jesse James"。




1971年麗風為李貝妮出版了她第一張的個人七吋單曲唱片《One Day Love 朝暮情╱FS-3》,製作人是其經理人梁柏濤Pato Leung;Side 1歌曲是同年先前全歐洲歌唱大賽(Eurovision Song Contest)中代表愛爾蘭參賽女歌手Angela Farrell演譯的"One Day Love",Side 2則是一首以唱述當年美國大盗Jesse James生平事蹟的同名民謠歌曲"Jesse James"。

隨後的1972年,她的首張個人七吋EP專集《Over And Over》面世,唱片內收錄的三首歌曲"Over And Over"、"Try To Remember"及quot;The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,全是抄襲了著名希臘女歌手Nana Mouskouri於1969年收錄的其個人十二吋LP專集《Nana Mouskouri Sings Over & Over》內、三首相同歌曲之演譯及伴奏配樂風格模式;其餘一首的"One Day When We Were Young",則是演譯了改編自已故Johann Straus II的原創作品"Wer Uns Getraut"、及經由Oscar Hammerstein II配詞後成為1938年西片〈The Great Waltz〉(華爾滋大王)中、由已故著名英國藝人Gracie_Fields原唱的插曲。而這唱片專集的配樂伴奏,全是由當年的蓮花樂隊(The Lotus)成員担綱,包括了周華年Wallace Chow(主音結他)、張俊英David Cheung(鼓)、蘇雄Danny So(低音結他)及Jimmy Chan(鍵琴)。

出版了這兩張個人唱片後,她變得消聲匿跡似的,再不見有任何她的歌曲出現。 其後麗風出版了多張的本地歌手雜錦民歌專輯LP,都有收錄了她曾灌唱那僅有的六首歌曲在內。這包括了:

She is such a natural and the song brings back so much sweet memory of the days when we were young. Can you please let me download it from your site? Thank you.

I have only just discovered Pollyanna Lee at Youtube. She is one of the best singers I have ever heard.Does anyone know why she stopped singing and where she is today and what she is doing?
Was she born in Hong Kong?
